Topic: Other Hobbies
I have this little voice in the back of my head that insists it is cheating to call it gardening if you buy plants half grown and just put them in the dirt. Even more so if flowers are blooming in your garden at the moment you cover the roots with soil!
Alas, I have delayed so long in planting my garden this year that I stooped to the depths and bought tomato plants to plop in the ground. I'm SO ashamed (but hopefully will have tasty tomatoes out of it).
However, the rest of the barrels (11 of them) have been planted with their little seeds in the manner of proper gardening.
I planted on Monday afternoon. Here on Thursday afternoon I have three barrels sprouting.
Here's the spinach:
and the radishes:
Yeah, I know they're small - but for only three days old...
The other thing is that they look pretty much the same. Good thing I labeled the barrels:
I did all the lettering with a chisel point marker upside-down leaning over the barrel! Pretty good, huh?
